I understand. I'm a mom and while I love my child, I am not this happy go lucky parent. I definitely struggled with post partum depression which made the OCD worse.
It sucks I literally broke down shortly after having him because of the way I felt.
@ashleyboo I hope you feel better. Just know there are many other parents that relate, you are not alone. Hope that helps somehow ♡
@OCDbree Thank you I appreciate it
You are not obligated to feel any certain way all of the time. Even when it comes to important things like your kids. Also, a lot of the posts and things you see where people are talking about how much they love their kids - well, you’re seeing these people at their best. You’re seeing the high points of their interactions with their kids. And it’s really unfair to compare your lows to someone else’s highs.
